UK Should Aim For 60% Cuts By 2030

"The UK would cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 60% by 2030 under world-leading proposals from the government's advisers on climate change."

Damian Carrington The Guardian, Tuesday 7 December 2010

There are three main tests of the coalition's pledge to be the "greenest government ever":

1) radical energy market reform

2) a strong Green Deal bill to overhaul energy efficiency in homes and

3) whether the government passes the 2030 target into law next year.

Number 2 appears to be well on the way. We are hearing noises about number 1. Optimism for number 3 anyone?
